The issue was never formally identified, but my check engine light went on a couple months ago and the car started acting up even worse, so my oxygen sensor was replaced under the suspicion that it turned on the light, and I haven't had any problems since then! The dealer did say that sometimes a faulty oxygen sensor can result in minor lagging of the car, so I'm assuming this was the cause of my problem, even though the dealer was not aware of any case as drastic as mine.
